Planning a long distance move requires organization and attention to detail, but the process doesn't have to be stressful. In fact, with the right help, long-distance moves can be pretty simple. Learn more about what type of additional services moving companies offer to make your move go smoothly.
When you're moving far away from your home, hiring a moving company that handles vehicle shipping can make your move a lot easier. It may be more cost effective to drive your car to your new home, but the trip can also be overwhelming. If your family has multiple vehicles, your family will be separated during the drive, which can be stressful when traveling a long distance. Also, when you drive your car to your new home, you need to keep track of where the moving truck is at all times. This way, you don't reach your new house several days before your belongings or get to your new home too late to let the movers inside. You can save yourself a lot of hassle by hiring a moving company that uses a car hauler to transport vehicles long distances. Then, your family can travel to your new location by plane and your car will meet you there.
Packing and Unpacking
Hiring a long-distance moving company that offers packing and unpacking services gives you the time you need to concentrate on other details of your move, such as calling utility companies and transferring your children to their new school. While you don't have to worry about packing and unpacking your belongings, you should:
- Take a complete inventory of the belongings in your house.
- Make arrangements for your children and/or pets to be out of the way while the movers are working.
- Make a list of any special instructions that you have for the movers so that you don't forget something important during the chaos.
Moving Unique Items
Items, such as an expensive art collection or a piano, need to be packed and moved carefully. But, you don't have to hire a specialist to handle any unique items that you own. Instead, hire long-distance movers that offer the services that your family needs. This way, you aren't dealing with multiple companies during the moving process.
The fact is, long-distance moves don't have to be overwhelming. By taking the time to plan properly, and hiring a moving company that offers packing and unpacking services; uses a car hauler to transport vehicles; and has the ability to transport any unique items that you own, you'll save yourself a lot of time and hassle.
